3 Pray for us, too, that God will give us many opportunities to speak about his mysterious plan concerning Christ. That is why I am here in chains. Colossians 4:3 (NLT)
There was one thing God confirmed to me on Sunday. He is very interested in his people telling others about Him.
How else do we explain the response at the conclusion of the service? I estimate that at least 60 of you stepped forward, waiting in line to pray for the Holy Spirit’s power, boldness and compassion. It’s obvious to me that the Holy Spirit led you there because he WANTS Christians to spread the gospel into the world. But here is the best bit, God wants to help us do that! When he said he would be with us, he actually meant that. He would not only help us to fulfill the great commission, but he would be right there with us helping us every step of the way.
See we think it’s all on us. But it’s not. God is right there with us. We just need to ask. He WANTS us to succeed. He WANTS to open up opportunities for us to share. So I urge you, start every day with the prayer above that Paul asked the Colossians to pray – and then look for those opportunities.
I feel the need to quote pastor Lex Akers: “Where we’re going we have never been before”
